Lights Now, Seats Later For Hollywood Theater
The revival of the Hollywood Theater in La Crosse could take a couple of years...but the process is taking small steps ahead.
Attorney and businessman Phil Addis first toured the vacant theater three months ago after buying it at auction. Now, he's been able to find which light fixtures are working, including some of the neon and Art Deco fixtures in the lobby. Addis also has been shopping for new theater seats. He thinks the theater could hold about 600 modern seats, compared to the thousand or so that were removed from the Hollywood years ago.
